Stock Up - These players have moved up the Draft Sharks rankings over the past week.
Lamar Miller, RB, Dolphins
Miller is off to a good start in camp, while RB Knowshon Moreno continues to be sidelined after knee surgery. Miller is a strong bet to open the season as Miami’s early-down back. The team is reportedly hoping that he can play the “LeSean McCoy role” in OC Bill Lazor’s offense. Miller has intriguing upside as 7th or 8th-round pick.
Carlos Hyde, RB, 49ers
A once-deep 49ers backfield has been thinned out by injuries to Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James. (Plus, Marcus Lattimore remains sidelined.) It leaves Hyde as the heavy favorite to win the #2 RB job behind 31-year-old Frank Gore.
Devonta Freeman, RB, Falcons
Steven Jackson’s hamstring injury opens the door for Freeman to impress with 1st-team reps in training camp and preseason action. The rookie could carve out a significant change-of-pace role even with Jackson healthy.
